FROM time to time members of the Faculty of Lebanon Val- 
ley College have been called upon to conduct "extension 
courses" in various places, so as to meet the needs of such 
persons as found it impossible to attend the courses given within 
the college. This service has developed very naturally, and almost 
unnoticed. It is felt that the time has now come when this unor- 
ganized movement should be definitely organized as an Extension 
Department or School. The College, on its part, is both willing 
and anxious to extend its services in every possible way. Accord- 
ingly certain courses are now offered, as described herein. The Col- 
lege will also be glad to receive requests from groups who desire 
courses other than these, and to arrange, whenever possible, to 
supply such instruction as may be desired. 

The courses offered are, for the most part, intended primarily 
for those engaged in teaching. However, all other qualified per- 
sons will be admitted to extension courses, and some courses are 
more or less definitely planned to meet the needs or interests of 
persons outside of the teaching group. All courses will be taught 
by regular members of the college Faculty, and will be of regular 
college grade and receive credit as such. Inasmuch as Lebanon 
Valley College is an accredited institution, on the first list of col- 
leges and universities, persons who complete these courses may 
safely assume that their credits will be honored wherever they may 
be presented. The credits earned in these courses will be regularly 
counted by Lebanon Valley College towards its degrees. 


Each class will meet for thirty sessions at the specified time each 
week from October to May, exclusive of Thanksgiving, Christmas 
and Easter recesses. The first meeting of each group will be held 
in the week of October 2. 


Registration may be made at the time and place of the first meet- 
ing of the classes. All those who are interested are invited to at- 


tend the first meeting of any class, at which time questions may be 
asked and the nature of the work more fully explained. 


The requirements for admission are set forth in the annual catalog 
of the college. College credit will be given only to those who have 
had a four year high school course or the equivalent. A teacher's 
certificate will be accepted as evidence of satisfactory preparation 
for admission to the courses. A limited number of persons whose 
preparation may not meet the requirements as set forth above may 
be admitted at the discretion of the instructors. 


In Harrisburg the classes will meet in the Technical High School. 
Lebanon classes will meet in the Junior High School. Classes meet- 
ing in the college at Annville are specifically so noted. 

Evening classes will meet for a double period, beginning at 7:30 
and continuing until 9:15. The time of meeting of other classes is 
stated in connection with the description of the course. 


A fee of $2.00 will be charged for matriculation and registration 
in the case of all who have not been previously matriculated in the 
college. The tuition charge for extension courses will be $6.00 for 
each credit point. For example, the charge for matriculation and 
registration in courses leading to eight points credit would be 
$50.00. This is approximately the regular fee for tuition in the col- 
lege. Fees for the first term are due and payable on or before 
October 14, and for the second term, on or before February 10. 
Remittances should be made to the Treasurer, and may be sent by 
mail, or, if more convenient, by the person of the instructor. 



E14. Botany. The course will include the study of the function 
and structure of one or more representatives of each division of the 
plant kingdom in the laboratory, and extensive observations of plant 
societies and ecological factors in the field. Methods of identifica- 
tion, preservation of plants for demonstration and laboratory work 


will be taught. The course will be found particularly valuable by 
teachers of Botany or Biology in High Schools who have not had a 
thorough course in college Botany. At Annville. Four hours, 
Saturday. Both terms. Four to eight points. Professor Derickson. 


The college offers this year two lecture-demonstration courses in 

E14. Household Chemistry. A beginner's course, emphasizing 
the practical every-day side of Chemistry and including a study of 
the chemistry of foods and their preparation and preservation, with 
simple tests for adulterants and preservatives, bacteria and disinfec- 
tants, soaps and their manufacture, medicinals, sanitation, water 
supply, fuels, textiles and the elements of dyes and dyeing. Two 
hours. Both terms. Four points. Professor Bender. 

E24. General Organic Chemistry. A study of the sources, classi- 
fication and type reactions of organic materials, of food-stuffs and 
their relation to nutrition, dyes, pharmaceuticals, explosives, coal 
tar intermediates, manufacturing processes and recent developments 
in this field of Chemistry. The course will include a carefully se- 
lected series of demonstrations, the display of a large number of 
representative materials, and the use of about one hundred charts 
specially designed and prepared by the instructor. A knowledge of 
the elements of Chemistry will be assumed. Two hours. Both 
terms. Four points. Professor Bender. 

Both of these courses will be given in popular language, as free 
from technical terms as possible. Laboratory work in connection 
with both courses can, if desired, be done on Saturdays in the 
college laboratories. Additional credits will be allowed upon the 
completion of such work. 

E14. The History of English Drama. Through lectures, assigned 
readings and general discussion the history of English Drama is 
traced through the Miracle and Morality plays of the Middle Ages 
up to the closing of the theatres in 1642. The Pre-Shakespearian 
tendencies are studied in the chief plays of Shakespeare, the course 
closing with the study of the Post-Shakespearian traditions. 

E24. The Short Story. The history of the short story will be 
traced through the Middle Ages and up to the prevailing types and 
tendencies of the present day. The class may be requested to write 
a few short story forms in tracing the history of the type. 


E34. Public Speaking. This is a practical course in public speak- 
ing, including the organization of material and its effective presen- 
tation. Extemporaneous speaking, reading and formal oratory will 
be given due emphasis. Two hours. Both terms. Four points. 
Professor Beatty. 


E12. The Project Method of Teaching. This course deals with 
the origin of the project method, its meaning and importance, dan- 
gers and difficulties and how they may be overcome. Each member 
of the class will be expected to make an independent study of 
project teaching as applied to some one special subject in which he 
or she is particularly interested, and to present to the group an 
outline of plans by which all or some part of the course of study 
in that subject might be taught by one or more projects. Two 
hours. First term. Two points. Professor Hoke. 

E22. Experimental Psychology. A brief, introductory course in 
Experimental Psychology. A knowledge of the elements of General 
Psychology will be assumed. In connection with the course the 
class will make a hasty review of Psychology so far as may be 
necessary as a basis for the work. The course will be limited to 
experiments in the field of Sensation alone. Two hours. Second 
term. Two points. Professor Hoke. 

E32. Philosophy of Education. This course aims to orient 
teachers and to supply a basis for constructive thinking in the field 
of education. It will include a discussion of the aims and methods 
of public education from the modern point of view. Various theories 
in education will be considered. The class will study the changes 
that have been brought about in educational conceptions as they 
have been influenced by modern industrial, social, and scientific de- 
velopments. Two hours. First term. Two points. Professor 

E42. Educational Sociology. This course should not be expected 
to supply classroom methods, but rather to enhance professional 
culture and ideals. For those who have not studied Sociology, it 
will develop the more important conceptions and viewpoints of that 
science. More particular attention, however, will be paid to the 
relationships between society and education, and to the manner in 
which educational method, content, and organization are based upon 
these relationships. Two hours. Second term. Two points. Pro- 
fessor Hoke. 



EH. Pennsylvania in the Federal Union. This course covers the 
period from the adoption of the Constitution of the United States 
to the Civil War. The place of Pennsylvania in national affairs will 
be considered. The political and economic phases of our history 
will receive consideration. The course is especially adapted to the 
needs of those who teach in Pennsylvania and is designed to give 
a more intensive local view and at the same time a broader na- 
tional outlook. Two hours. Both terms. Four points. Professor 

E24. The History of Christianity. In this course it is intended 
to study Christianity as an historic force — the mightiest force oper- 
ative in the history of the human race. Particular attention is 
given to the story of the origin, progress and development of the 
Christian religion, and of its influence upon the world. Ministers 
and Sunday School teachers should find this course especially help- 
ful. Offered at Annville, 9:30 to 11:15 each Saturday. Two hours. 
Both terms. Four points. Professor Butterwick. 

E14. Public School Music. This course will be designed to meet 
the varied requirements of teachers in all grades. It will embrace 
a thorough and practical study of Elements and Terminology of 
Music, Ear Training, Sight Singing and Melodic Dictation; Ele- 
ments of Harmony and Composition, Melodic and Harmonic Think- 
ing, and Methods of Teaching. The object of this department will 
be to afford teachers an opportunity of acquiring a superior knowl- 
edge of the intellectual and pedagogical fundamentals of music and 
music teaching. Those entering this course should have had some 
preparatory work in the study of Tonality, Scales, and in Singing, 
though no advanced degree of proficiency is prerequisite. Two 
hours. Both terms. Four points. Dr. Blose. 


E14. Problems of Democracy. This course consists of an 
analysis of the various economic, political and social problems inci- 
dent to the democratic form of government. It is the aim of the 
course to assist the teacher, as a leader in the social life of the 
community, to render a greater public service. The course begins 
with a study of the foundations of government, after which much 
time is given to readings and discussions. Two hours. Both terms. 
Four points. Professor Gingrich.
